Evaluating Office Movers
Checklist for Evaluating Office Moving Companies
When it comes to organizing your office movers, you're faced with a big decision - how do you find reputable office moving companies who are honest and good at what they do? After all, you'll only want to entrust your valuable business assets and belongings to a professional and reliable moving company who will do everything in their power to get your office moved safely, securely and without delay.
In order to find the right Office Moving Company, you will need to put in a little time and effort to ensure you get this important aspect of your office relocation right. Here are 5 vital "homework" items you need to do before you hire anyone:
Search up to 3 Office Moving Companies in your City using the HelpMovingOffice Office Movers Directory. These companies have already been carefully researched and independently selected to give you only the best in your area.
Ask your co-workers and neighbors about what their experience of them is. Ask companies who have moved over the last say, 12 months for their recommendations and opinions.
Licences & Insurances
In evaluating the office movers you need to know if they are adequately licenced and insured to carry out your office move. Movers are regulated by federal, state and local laws. Investigate your potential office movers through the U.S Department of Transportation, MovingScam and the Better Business Bureau for any adverse reputation or warnings.
How long has the moving company been around for? It's advisable to chose a company who has been established at least 4 years, and shows that they have had sufficient experience in office moves over that time.
Get 3 Estimates
It's very difficult to judge a company on pricing alone unless you're comparing like-with-like. So aim to get at least 3 office moving estimates. Getting estimates will also give you an opportunity to meet with each moving company in person to find out whether they are the type of company you'd like the business to work with and whether they have a clear understanding of your goals and requirements.
A final note
A good Office Moving Company will guide you through the entire process of moving your office from A to B, but they're not going to hold your hand all the way. There's a lot that YOU need to do to get your business organized for moving. Download the Office Moving Checklist for a full list of moving tasks - presented in a simple and practical way.
